I don't know well what to say about the terrible invasion today :(, but I don't want to say anything either. I stand with the Ukrainian population, and with many Russians and Belarusians who want freedom and have been living under the yoke of dictators for a long time.
no translation tool can ever perfectly express what Maarten needs to say, but I'm sending prayers from the USA.
@hamblingreen Thanks. Perhaps it might seem a bit ironic I tooted it in Russian, but that's the language I know (albeit poorly) and that most in Ukraine, Belarus and Russia will understand, and the message of support is first of all towards them. Also, I believe we're in this together, this is not Russians vs Ukrainians, both populations will suffer from this, this is autocracy vs those aspiring towards democracy...
exactly. i've always been insulated from my life being threatened, and it breaks my heart that people are losing their lives in this conflict. all I can hope for is a peaceful resolution.
